After Tecopa Rains
JA asked me one time, "where's the glint on a cloudy day?" I answered, "Well, clouds are really reflected and refracted glint, all that which offers much to be gathered. I thought it was interesting that a cloud is a mass of microscopic rainbows all jostling around together. Our eyes can actually gather glint in their own way from any light source. Color is just the flavor of glint. We watch for the patterns to be formed in a rhythmic or melodic way, light symphonies. Enjoy your walks. Go for the tall trees that have sunlight glinting through the leaves. Pine needles are great to create mandalas of threads of linear rainbows. Anyway the real source is just relaxing in your camp chair in a nearby public forest, watching the sunset.
Oh yeah, this is the rushes and thrushes and grasses of the Tecopa Basin in the northern Mojave Desert the edge of a larger Death Valley Basin. Oh yeah, on a cloudy day.
